Letter to the Editor: Thank you from Westborough Education Foundation

Opinion-icon-for-website[1]To the Editor:

Are you smarter than your Selectmen?  The Westborough Education Foundation held its annual Trivia Bee on Nov. 4; and the Selectmen (Ian Johnson, George Barrette, and Tim Dodd), who played on a team sponsored by Ball Financial, hold bragging rights as the 2013 Trivia Bee Champions.

The big winners are Westborough school children.  With the generous support of the Westborough-area community, more than $15,000 was raised.  The WEF grants support academic programs at all six Westborough schools, to help teachers and administrators with programs not covered by the regular school budget.

The Westborough Education Foundation would like to thank Bee co-chairs Maureen Johnson and Sue Baillargeon; Town Moderator, Joe Harrington who posed questions; Tim Koehler who created the questions; our judges:  Superintendent, Marianne O’Connor, Library Director, Maureen Ambrosino, and Police Chief, Al Gordon; Matt Travis of Athletic Revolution; Ellen Bishop for photography; Steve Masciarelli for his technical help; and high school students in the Jazz Combo, String Quartet and Woodwind Quartet, and the Contemporary a cappella group.

The WEF would like to thank the following businesses and groups who have so generously supported the Trivia Bee:  Adcole; Alexander, Aronson, Finning & Co., P.C.; Armstrong Parent Group; Avidia Bank; Ball Financial; Beaumont At The Willows; BJ’s Wholesale Club; Bose Corporation; Boston Red Sox; Boston Ski & Tennis; Central One Federal Credit Union; Cumulus Global; Curry Printing; Dolan & Maloney Insurance Agency; DoubleTree Hotel; E.L.
